Reports tab
The Reports section of the CMS provides a variety of targeted searches for content with specific attributes.
The Reports tab in the CMS helps authors and editors keep better track of their organization’s pages by providing a variety of targeted searches for content with specific attributes. These reports give authors and editors more control over their organization’s content and help identify content in the CMS that needs to be updated.
You can access the Reports section by logging in to the CMS and navigating to the Content section.
Reports tab
There are several different reports you can use to search your content:

Parent Review Reports

  • Children and Parents
Make sure the parent pages selected for your organization’s pages are appropriate.
  • Pages with deep and long breadcrumbs
When a page has a breadcrumb that has many levels there is a strong chance that it could be confusing or difficult for a user to find, or that a parent isn't quite right somewhere in the breadcrumb.
  • Pages with questionable parents selected during bulk population
We used complex logic to automatically populate the Parent page fields. Sometimes, we had to fall back on logic that was less precise. This report shows those pages so your office can review these parent page selections and, if appropriate, to make changes.
  • Pages with no published parent
Ideally, the only pages that appear on this report should be top level topics and top level organizations which are directly under "Home" in the breadcrumb. Review to make sure you don't have any other content here that needs a parent.

General Reports

  • Curated list details
Long Curated Lists are difficult for users to navigate and can put a lot of strain on the CMS. Use this report to look for Curated Lists that are very large to see if there is a better way to display or break up this information. The reports shows the number of lists on each page as well as the number of manual links and documents included. We don’t currently have a report to show the number of links or documents on an automatic list.
  • Documents with no binary file
This report shows document items that don't have a file attached. Files should be added to these documents to avoid broken links.
  • Organization pages
Generate a list of different Organization pages within the CMS, and see which fields are used on those pages.
  • Pages that don't have a public organization
These pages should have a related organization in a public state. Because this data is missing, there is no organization shown on the published pages. They will need to have an organization added in order to be updated.
  • Redirects
This report shows redirects that have been created to pages in Drupal or to pages offsite. Redirects may be friendly URLs or may have been automatically created when a page title changed.
  • Pages with long or short titles
Titles are the main way that your audience is going to find and identify your content. Pages with titles that are longer than 70 characters will be shortened or cut off in a search engine result. Titles that are too short may be too vague or broad and could confuse visitors. See these title guidelines.
  • Published alerts
This report can be helpful to see more details about alerts that are published in your organization. Use this list to see if any of your alerts need refreshing or unpublishing. You can easily see whether alerts are organization or page based alerts, the severity level, the number of alert messages, and the number of pages or organizations the alert is included on.
  • Services with custom link grouping
This report can be helpful to understand the services within the site and what fields they use. This search will contain only services that use custom link grouping. The report generates slowly and should be run during non-business hours.
  • Services with standard link grouping
This report can be helpful to understand the services within the site and what fields they use. This search will contain only services that use standard link grouping. The report generates slowly and should be run during non-business hours.
  • Scheduled Transitions
See any pages in your organization that have an upcoming scheduled publish or unpublish date.
